It started with my husband who this summer started getting very itchy and it didn't pass on to me till we moved into our new house this September. The bumps on both of us didn't appear till about that time as well and they've only escalated since then. I went to the doctor and he said no sign of any type of bug/mites but thought it might be PUPP since i'm pregnant. Well I used the cream he gave me and it had no effect.
I've started noticing small little bumps on my three year olds back but he doesn't ever complain that it itches so I don't know if that's just coincidence. All three of us do suffer from eczema and i'm wondering if maybe something at our new house has flared the eczema. Just don't know what on earth could have done that.
We have been using the same soaps as we always have and our water doesn't smell very strong of chlorine or anything.
My husband has it worse then I do but this constant itching and bumps has gone on long enough! Most of my bumps are around my tummy area but I have some on my back and backside of my knees. My thighs really itch but there are no bumps. My husband has them all over very bad. From his hands to his feet. We've tried so many different things to help ease the itching:
-changing laundry detergent to hypo-allergenic
-my husband has started benedryl which seems to kind of be working but leaves me SOL with being pregnant
We're just at a loss and having to spend money on the doctor for them to not know what it is seems silly. Anyone have any ideas? Or maybe a stronger method of relieving itching? It would be SO appreciated! I don't think we can stand it much longer!
